Kid Country? Detroit's Kid Rock wins over country music festival
'I'm just as confused as you,' Detroit rocker tells WE Fest crowd
Kid Rock didn't hold back while headlining a country music festival in Minnesota over the weekend.
The Detroit star played his full set of hip hop Southern rock -- with some country mixed in -- at WE Fest 2016 in Detroit Lakes, Minn. Reports say Kid Rock played into the seeming mismatch of styles with the crowd.
“Don’t worry man, I’m just as confused as you,” he told the crowd, according to Taste of Country.
